By Grossi, PietroTranslated by Curtis, Howard )
Dino is a placid, unambitious man. Living in a small provincial town, he and his wife spend their time planning journeys to faraway places - journeysthey never take. Dino's only passion is billiards, and he spends his evenings in the local billiards hall honing his technique. One... day, however, Dino's quiet life is interrupted-his wife is pregnant. This the first in a series of events that shake him from his slumber and force him to test himself for the first time. As in his widely praised Fists, Pietro Grossi's stripped-down prose brings out the epic human drama in a tale of everyday life.Read more
